Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I have had this problem on my laptop. It is a fresh copy of Windows XP w/ sp2. I loaded no drivers onto it, installed nothing but zone alarm suite. I plug in the Ethernet to do windows update. SP3 being the first one. Installed it, rebooted. Now whenever I plug in an ethernet, or turn on wireless (the on off powersaver switch on the side) my computer locks up. As in no program will open. ctl+alt+delete. Nothing. Mouse moves, thats about it.
This is the second time I have reinstalled. Last time same thing, but I used the ethernet to DL all the drivers from Toshiba, and installed them, same outcome. I talked to a friend and he said to boot up in safe mode and look at the error log. I will do that in a second. Just wanted to get this posted then start working again.
I am very computer literate. So dont feel like you need to dumb down things to much.
I got the same problem before....but i just reformat it and only use the SP 2 and did not DL the other versions.....
